Today in the Richmond Times Dispatch, Gov. Elect Bob McDonnell has sent a letter to the Obama Administration to allow Virginia to drill off its shores for natural resources. According to independent research the job of off shore drilling would create 2,578 new jobs, $7.84 billion in capital investment, $644 million in payroll, $271 million in tax revenue that could be used for transportation, infrastructure and education in the state. All around this is a good thing for everyone. Off Shore drilling already occurs in the Gulf of Mexico.
